Hi everyone, sorry I’ve been MIA for the last week or so. I’m back in LA now and it tends to take me a few days to settle back in and catch up. So today I bring you Virginia & Brian’s wedding from last Saturday at the Hotel Monaco, coordinated by Meredith Flanagan. Flowers by Multiflor and lighting by John Farr. This wedding was just full of wonderful designer details, absolutely nothing was overlooked. Here are some highlights…
I don’t know who designed the gown but it was the most gorgeous two-piece lacey number.

I just had to grab this shot of Virginia ironing the sash to her dress while she was already wearing it. So cute.

I love this shot that my incredibly talented sister, Lauren took.

I love shooting weddings at the Monaco because it is just full of cool little nooks to photograph brides & grooms.

A little jumping on the bed before the ceremony is always good to loosen ‘em up.

Virginia got a little teary during the ceremony…

Now for a little history lesson. The Paris Ballroom at the Hotel Monaco was used as a surgical center during the civil war. Doctors performed surgeries under the big dome skylight in the center of the room because there was no electricity yet and it was the only indoor place where you could get the great overhead light that they needed to do surgery.

About 1 second later, Virginia pulled the veil off.

Virginia’s nieces were so adorable. Before the ceremony one of them walked right up to me and said “I’m bored.” It was such an adorable, honest moment.

    Hello Justine,
    I have to let you know that your work here and the slide-show are visually stunning. I was Virginia’s Maid of Honor and enjoyed meeting you and watching you work. I can not tell you how nice it is to relive the beauty of the evening through your photographs. I was with Virginia when she first met you and she was discussing her options with you. She did not overlook anything with this wedding and you were the “icing on the cake” in capturing all her hard work on the many details. Congrats to you in finding your life’s work, you are truely talented.
    Matilda
